guest: the koppers have a long history here in the u.s. and they can be in different forms. they can be owned by the members themselves and they use their strength as a group to purchase goods or services and the cooperatives of that would be formed across the united states would act in the very same way as they do today. i informed rural illinois and we are very familiar with cooperatives as individuals come together as groups. americans think of themselves as the rugged individualists, but actually, we join groups all the time. and the cooperatives give the power of groups to the individual. i think that it can bring competition to the health care sector. we need greater competition. but we need greater choices for individuals. and that is what i think cooperative's done correctly will do. a cartel, on the other hand, is controlled by the suppliers and their monopolistic -- and they are monopolistic and they do not serve to enhance competition. cartels killed competition. we ought to be careful about the real language that is being used. kecoughtahost: it sounds like ot c

regardly used exception to the 51-vote rule and they've turned it into a new rule. it's called the filibuster and means that the minority won't even allow something to be voted on without 60 senators giving it the nod. here's a little chart ha shows the use of the filibuster over time. see that huge spike at the end? that's what happened after the 2006 election in terms of the use of the filibuster when the republicans became the minority in the senate. that's how frequently they started filibustering stuff. instead of the filibuster being an exciting rare exception, when republicans lost their majority in the senate, they started filibustering everything. forcing democrats to get not just a simple a1-vote majority to pass legislation, but the 60 votes that would be needed to break the filibuster. 60 votes became the new rule. so, in other words, they did this. they changed a basic rule of the game order to make it harder for the democrats to score. and by and large the democrats just went along with it. they just accepted that the basket is suddenly 20% higher. they've trained
waves and rip currents. rob marciano is tracking it for us this morning. >> hot-button issues. taxpayers will be forced to pick up the tab for health care for illegal immigrants. president obama says that's simply not true. is that really the case? we have the truth squad this morning. >>> a bombshell accusation about president bush's white house straight from one of the most senior officials who work there. we're talking about tom ridge. he's out with a new book. in it, he claims the white house pressured him to raise the terror level days before the 2004 presidential election. the suggestion -- president bush's team was ready to use scare tactics to score political points. we'll talk to jeanne meserve. but first, the back story from our senior white house correspondent, ed henry. >> reporter: the friday before the 2004 election. only two or three points separated democrat john kerry from president bush. suddenly, a twist. osama bin laden released a shocking new videotape and it played nonstop on the arab language network al jazeera. >> translator: your security is not in the
tripoli, where the only man convicted of the bombing of the u.s. passenger jet over lockerbie in scotland 21 years ago is enjoying his forceful day of freedom. arguments are continuing, though, on whether the scottish authorities were right to release abdelbaset al-megrahi from prison on compassionate grounds, suffering from prostate cancer. british foreign secretary david miliband adding his voice. he described it as deeply distressing. 207 people lost their lives when a pan am jumbo jet was ripped apart by an explosion in 1988. many of the victims were american. let us get the latest. >> it was everything many relatives feared -- a convicted terrorist welcomed home as a hero. stepping of colonel khadafy's private jet, abdelbaset al- megrahi was showered and confetti and hugged by the libyan leader's son. he was now wearing a suit surrounded by it -- wearing a suit, surrounded by his countrymen. earlier crowds of young men gathered to show his support. al-megrahi's returns coincides with the 40th anniversary of the revolution that brought it back into power. >> the use of libya are the u

be insane. if president obama could articulate how exactly the investment would help all of us, i believe he might succeed in his quest to make health care more sensible. americans are a generous people, we give more money to the poor than any other country on earth. if you harm the economy of the nation, you are hurting more people and you are helping. that is what the president doesn't understand. it is a fact, since he has been in office, we have spent more money than at any other time in history and now he wants another trillion dollar entitlement. in the long run, he says it will be cost efficient but the congressional budget office says baloney. americans are skeptical. just 49% of americans hold a favorable view of the democratic party which is down from 62% last winter. while government spending least people very concerned. this does not improve the health care system but it can be done in a smart way which strips federal oversight on insurance companies. the left-wing doesn't want to hear that because they want income redistribution. government run health care is a way to do that. c
